    How do you know it is a Anton stock? Did he mark them in a special way. What made his stocks special? I had what I thought was a Anton roll over stock but it wasn't

    The Salesman @ Cabelas in Rapid City said it was an Anton Stock. Had a very unique grip cap inlay with different wood and a very significant rollover. When did Anton pass away and what age would this gun be?
    Thanks

    Dave P the most reconisable feature of the Anton stocks was the different colored wood he used on the bottom of the grip it was a block I think it was Rose wood but im sure others will know.

    I have memories of the line-ups in the 70's at Anton's booth (East End next to P-W ) at the Grand American/Vandalia,Ohio.Waiting to have a stock fitted. A young man on horse back could spot an Anton Stock on a shotgun. He must have made 100's for ll00,870s and m-12s.
    I apologize for showing my age.

    A year ago I got a call from a guy in Iowa who'd had taken over the Anton stocks that his friend had pruchased. His friend had purchased the inventory of Anton stocks.

    The "friend" was serving some time for what I can't remember, but the guy wanted me to help him sell the stocks. I was involved with the company that made all of the wood Weatherby stocks here in Rapid City for Weatherby, so he thought I had a means to accomplish the selling.

    The guy never got back to me, but he said he had a bunch of them.

    Perhaps someone here on ts.com may know of this guy in Iowa.

    Whiz
